Be careful. Went to the lease last week with the kids. Did some exploring safely and my 10 year old daughter spotted a few snakes on a hill which I expected. We were safe. Coords were provided and Black Ops went in this week. My boy almost stepped on one by here last year and me to after filling a feeder. This was one den. We got a ton more I think. Killed two in camp itself just walking around in Sept. 12 rattlers and copperheads trying to cook dinner so still less than 5% of the time...

Snakes don't use calendars and can be out any time it is warm. I have seen copperheads at my place every month of the year.

I see rattlers 12 months of the year but I usually know where they are Nov to Mar. On a south slope facing rock. These were from a single rock. Luckily only had copperheads 2 years ago in the summer. They came out of nowhere in camp.

In Texas the snake time of year is 24/7/365....

I won’t kill them.....I like snakes much more than rats and mice....

Besides, if you leave them alone they will leave you alone....

Venomous around house, barn, shop and pond get killed, especially a-hole cottonmouths. Non-venomous get a pass.

Cottonmouths are the yellow jackets of the snake world. They should be eradicated with utmost vigor.
